Valmet Petra build

Post by Sako92S » Sat Feb 18, 2017 3:58 am

If some one is wondering how to make cool lookin Valmet Petra here it is.
Rifle is owned by Saimaa Still suppressors manufacturer. You can see the can attached to the barrel. I would say the best suppressor for semi and full automatic AK/AR-15 type rifles. No gas coming to your face or inside the receiver. You may also notice that it uses modified steel G3 magazines. Stock adapter is self made and stock is ACE.

well done! I tested a few silencer designs of my own making using maglite D cell tubes and all kinds of adapters, spacers and baffles, I managed to reduce the sound by approx 50% so far but will improve, good enough already not to wear any ear protection...after a few trial with wobbly adapters I ended up threading the barrel to 5/8'' - 24 and that was the best decision ever, even if I stressed a bit during the threading process as it was my first, but it went well...Maglite threaded end caps of different size are available on ebay and if allowed in your country, it is quite easy to make one. when not using a silencer, I will use a muzzle break 5/8'' -24 as thread protector as many are available on the market. The use of a silencer on the Petra is quite easy, because it does not get in the way of the line of sight. Cheers
